Meeting Tuesday, rally Thursday, vote Wednesday?

Friends of Lents Park invites all interested parties to our general meeting 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 16 at the Lents Park Gazebo. We'll be bringing everyone up to date on the latest proposals, and our plans for a rally at Thursday's meeting of the Lents Urban Renewal Advisory Committee.

The first details of the final proposal for the Beavers stadium inside Lents Park were released Monday on the URAC's Web site (under Meeting Agendas and Summaries.)

The URAC will have an open house from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, June 18 at the Mt. Scott Community Center, 5530 SE 72nd Avenue. That will be followed by a URAC meeting at 6 p.m.

At 5 p.m., join us in front of the community center as we protest the sparse public involvement process proposed thus far.

And be sure to contact URAC members and Portland city commissioners asking them to slow the process down, as we have demanded. Click here for contact information.

We're also asking the Lents Neighborhood Association have a ballot vote Wednesday to give its representatives to the URAC guidance on how to proceed.
